Government shutdown delayed treatment for 30-year-old mother with stage 4 cancer

(NaturalNews) Michelle Langbehn is a 30-year-old mother who was diagnosed with stage 4 sarcoma (a rare form of cancer), when her daughter was only eight weeks old. She was told she would only survive a year.

She stopped her chemotherapy because she was waiting to hear from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) about whether or not she would be accepted into a clinical trial for patients with sarcoma.

The government shutdown delayed her answer for almost a week, only to find out that she was not accepted into the NIH trial. She was outraged that the shutdown wasted valuable time that she could have used trying to get into another clinical trial. In the meantime, she discovered that she has a new sarcoma growth in her collarbone. Michelle is still hopeful and refuses to let her daughter grow up without a mother. She is attempting to get accepted in other trials.

Perhaps this let-down was a blessing in disguise. Michelle has already suffered through nine months of chemotherapy, several surgeries and two rounds of radiation. This clinical trial could have exposed her to more toxic chemotherapy and/or radiation, assaulting her immune system and weakening her organs. Hopefully, another door will open for Michelle and for countless other frightened cancer patients that rely on this broken medical system to save their lives. Most likely, it won't come from their oncologist, and it won't be covered under their insurance plan, but powerful alternative treatments are available, and safe, and have saved countless lives.
The following is a list of just a few existing natural cancer treatments:

Gerson Therapy
The Gerson Therapy is a natural treatment that triggers the body's remarkable ability to heal itself by using an organic vegetarian diet, raw juices, coffee enemas and powerful natural supplements. For more information, see Gerson.org and Gersonmedia.com (also available on Netflix).

Essaic Tea
Essiac tea is a four-herb tea that supports the immune system and can be taken without any side effects. It kills free radicals that cause cancer and purifies the liver and kidneys of toxins. The Essaic formula includes the following four botanical herbs: sheep sorrel, burdock, slippery elm and Indian rhubarb. See Herbalhealer.com for more information.

Modified Citrus Pectin
Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) is a form of pectin derived from citrus fruits which has been modified for better absorption, which enhances its healing properties. A university study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute (December 2002) found that MCP reduced tumor growth, angiogenesis and metastasis in tumors containing galectin-3. Galectin-3 is a protein on the surface of cells that acts like a sticky hand, helping other cells to bind to it. Cancer cells have many more galectins than regular cells and can multiply very quickly, forming clusters of cells that become tumors. MCP surrounds these 'sticky' cells and prevents them from sticking together and forming tumors.

Medicinal Mushrooms
Ganoderma reishi, turkey tail, chaga and shiitake mushrooms are just a few of the powerful cancer-fighting mushrooms that exist and have been used in cancer treatment in Japan, China, Russia, eastern Europe and other countries for decades. These powerful fungi contain betulinic acid, which is toxic to cancer cells. In addition to their anti-tumor properties, they are proven to alleviate the side effects of chemotherapy and boost the immune system.

Hydrogen Peroxide and Oxygen Therapies
It has been clinically proven that cancer cells cannot grow in the presence of oxygen. As more oxygen is introduced, cancer spreads slower and the cancer cells die off. There are various types of oxygen treatments, including oxygenation therapy, hyperoxygenation (using a hyperbaric oxygen chamber), bio-oxidative therapy, oxidative therapy, autohemotherapy and hydrogen peroxide therapy.

Currently, there is a lot of buzz about hydrogen peroxide therapy, but great care must be exercised. The 3% hydrogen peroxide sold in drug stores is not safe to ingest and can be dangerous. Only 35% food-grade hydrogen peroxide can be used in this therapy, which should be carefully done with the advice of a professional.
